Today’s Scriptures: Lectionary selections from the Revised Common Lectionary Year C
O come, O come, Emmanuel
Our joy, our rejoicing comes in the knowledge that Emmanuel has come to us and will come again. The Philippians passage brings us into a time that exceeds joy to rejoicing.
Joy (should) fills us because we have the spirit with us at all times, but then there are the times that we rejoice. Joy tends to be subtle and content to contain itself. Rejoicing blasts that joy to everyone present. There are times to rejoice. Today is such a day.
Open your heart. Open your soul. Open your voice. Let us show the world the joy we know.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
